Obama visits the White House while the echoes of McCain’s can’t-say-that (or That either) (and definitely not THAT!) protestulations and admonishments still ring in our heads.
This makes it hard to understand why The Maverick has been so quiet on the snarkfest re: Palin.
Says a new blog pal: Your silence, sir, is deafening!
A friend recently asked if I jot down all my bloggy ideas as they come to me and then type them up later. The answer is Yes, I have between two and twenty scraps of paper shoved in my purse or pocket at any given time and/or I type reminders in a Word doc if I’m at a PC when inspiration comes. One of this morning’s looked like this:
Check out Pindell Reprt on Politicker. If poor, slam for sub-title “dynamic and deeply reported” – WTF does that MEAN? If good, give props. Also, email webmaster re: typo on About page.
And the result is something like this:
Today’s Pindell Report has Nevada as most the closely contested swing state in the nation.
The report ranks and re-ranks races by competitiveness, so the race ranked first will be won by the smallest margin of victory and the race ranked last is believed to promise the largest margin. The report’s About page says it takes into account polling, fundraising, past election data, demographic changes, interviews with the nation’s top political strategists, and Politicker.com’s reporters out in the field. The rankings are evaluated daily to ensure they’re current.
Seems like a good system to me, and I like the little “+2” and “-4” notations to show whether the race rose or fell on the list. (Make sure to click on the Senate, House, Governor and Presidential tabs to see all rankings for all races.)
